Budget carrier Ryanair said it became the first airline to fly more than 10m international passengers in a month as its customer service overhaul continues to boost business.

The Irish no-frills carrier notched up a record 10.1m customers in July, up 11% from a year earlier.

It also carried its planes 95% full, up from 91% a year ago.

Kenny Jacobs, chief marketing officer for Ryanair, said: "These record customer numbers and highest ever load factors are due to our lower fares, our stronger forward bookings and the continuing success of our 'Always Getting Better' customer experience programme."

Ryanair claimed its July traffic was more than Aer Lingus carried in the whole of 2014.
